A woman was arrested in the House gallery Thursday after interrupting a reading of the Constitution by yelling out her belief that President Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen of the United States.
When Frank Rep. Pallone (D-N.J.) read the part of Article II, Section 1 mandating that only a “natural-born citizen” may be president, the woman, seated in the front row of the public gallery, screamed “Except Obama, except Obama. Help us Jesus.”
An officer removed her from the gallery as she yelled out “My name is Theresa.”
“You’re under arrest,” the officer could be heard telling her as he led her through double doors at the back of the chamber.
